I wrote a poem, The Sandman's Warning, some time ago and then eventually submitted it to Far Off Places magazine for their Under the Bed Edition. With some minor editing, ie removal of a verse, the poem saw publication. You can buy the magazine at https://faroffplaces.org/.
When I first wrote the poem I had researched the story of the Sandman and found he wasn't quite the kind, gentle figure that sprinkled gold dust on the eyes to bring sweet dreams - that is what you would regard as the Disney version. The original Sandman story was much darker and more macabre. After I had written it, a work colleague showed me the above video. It was one she had used with her Year 8 English class on previous occasions. I was completely unaware of this but it fitted in perfectly with my poem.
A writer - I think that says it all.
